MDA Programme Awareness Forum

Time: 2.00 pm - 2.30 pm; 3:30 pm - 4.00 pm
Hosted by the Media Development Authority of Singapore (MDA), this forum provides delegates with insights into Singapore's plans to develop the country's Interactive Digital Media (IDM) sector. In July 2006, the government announced the allocation of S$500 million over five years to fund R&D in IDM. Spearheaded by MDA, the IDM R&D Programme provides support for individuals, the education sector, industry players as well as institutes of higher learning. Eight projects under the MDA’s i.JAM (IDM Jump-start and Mentor) initiative will be showcased during the Chill-Out! session at the end of Day 2 of DMfest.
